This isn't an open admission of an iPad app, but it might as well be. Flaws notwithstanding, the iPad is very likely to be an enormous hit, while the iPhone is already huge.

“We are very big believers in mobile and we don’t think about (just) one device only.”

Of course, with the iPad it isn't an issue of "just one" device. There are already legions of iPhone customers and their numbers will only increase with time. It doesn't seem to be a question of 'will' there be a Hulu app for the iPhone OS, but 'when'.
